With Intel set to launch its fourth-generation Core processor series in the coming months, what better time than the present for AMD to pad its FX line a little bit? The company this week added two models to the fray; the FX-6350 and the FX-4350. These models directly replace the FX-6300 and FX-4300, with the primary improvements being the clock speeds.

In the FX-6350 vs. FX-6300 battle, AMD’s latest chip boosts the stock clock from 3.5GHz to 3.9GHz and has increased the turbo clock by 100MHz to peak at 4.2GHz. The FX-4350 sees similar gains over the FX-4300; it bumps the clock to 4.2GHz over 3.8GHz and adds 300MHz to the peak turbo, which now sits at 4.3GHz. The FX-4350 also doubles its L3 cache over the FX-4300 – a nice boost to be sure. Both CPUs are specced with a TDP of 125W (it’s worth noting the FX-4300 is 95W).

Here’s a rundown of AMD’s current FX lineup:

As of the time of writing, I could only find AMD’s latest CPUs at Newegg. It’s assumed we’ll see them trickle out into other etailers in the week ahead.
